Colourful history lesson wows Torah Academy

  • YouthTorahAcademyHistorian
Torah Academy Boys’ High School recently attended a presentation by English historian, educationalist, and author, Christopher Lloyd, at St John’s College. Lloyd is best known for his unique method of teaching the greatest moments in nature, science, sport, and history, with wall books that fold out into 2m-long visual timelines. Key historical events are marked by pictures and captions, encouraging curiosity to flow and enabling children to make instant connections between the past and present.

One of Lloyd’s innovative teaching aids is his Cambridge graduation coat, which has been modified with 20 coloured pockets. Pupils can “pick a pocket or two”, which contain everyday objects such as toilet paper – linking China to the Guttenberg Press – and other mundane objects such as a plastic bowl or bottled water, which he masterfully connects to key periods in history, causing a “wow” response from the audience.

Torah Academy is looking forward to Lloyd’s return in May 2020 for the Kingsmead Book Fair.
